Idle hands and illustrative talent down at BCUC
Last night I went down to the student bar at BCUC (the Bucks uni) to check out 'idle hands', a team of street artists and illustrators - one of which is a friend, hence how I ended up there. The setup of the evening involved 6 guys tricking out some 8 x 4 canvases (well, white-washed MDF actually) as envious spectators drank and gawped at their work as it developed, and wow, was I impressed.
One of the artists especially impressed me, going by the name dirty thirty. Below is a picture of his board.
The event had a real positive and creative atmosphere, and I managed to have a chat with a few of the artists as they were working. It just shows what great talent is emerging locally, and I look forward to networking with idle hands more - and hopefully collaborating with them on projects in the not too distant future.
